A search warrant was conducted on the house owned by Sioux Falls Fire Chief Jim Sideras by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation and Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office. It was part of an ongoing investigation by the DCI, a spokesperson confirms to KELOLAND News.
Sideras' last day with the City of Sioux Falls is Tuesday, according to the city.
“I can tell you he’s no longer an employee with the City of Sioux Falls effective today, we [are] gonna move on, take care of our city in the best way that we can, just like we’ve always done," Mayor Mike Huether said to KELOLAND News.
The Mayor wouldn't confirm if Sideras was fired, resigned or retired earlier than expected.
Sideras had announced his retirement from Sioux Falls Fire Rescue in April after 34 years with the department. He was expecting to retire as fire chief in June and become the executive director of the South Dakota Healthcare Coalition.
Division Chief Brad Goodroad will serve as interim Fire Chief until the city finds a replacement. This is a developing story.
